I want to hear old stories of seeing the F'Lips. We all know that they've become their most popular in this decade, but they worked for a hell of a long time to get to where they are. Who saw them when and what can you tell us?
I saw them in 03 opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was an absolutely astounding show. It was a year before the bubble made its appearance, and they were still relatively unknown. I was blown away by the theatrically insane production and the amazing pop undercurrent to the songs (almost all from Yoshimi and The Soft Bulletin). They did the Nun, Wayne doused himself in blood multiple times and they attempted audience performance as openers. They were widely booed, but I remember loving it.
